    Hi,
    I recently update my purchased Hans Zimmer Piano, and it can’t be found by my “unauthorised” kontakt 5. I looked up Spitfire web, they said it could be used with the free “kontakt player”, which I believe is the same but another kontakt platform running different libraries (?)

    So my question is, could I run HZP with the free kontakt player and using my unauthorised kontakt 5 in the same time? Will it be caught?
    Or, is there any other better way of this?

    Newbie here, hi everybody.
    I'm on Sierra 10.12.6 and I already have Kontakt 5 legit installed (always updated, now 5.8.1) and working properly.
    Just wanted to crack some Orange Tree Sounds Evolution guitar libraries, but installing cracked Kontakt seems very difficult.

    I've searched through the entire forum if I would find an answer to my problem, but none working.

    Done, although it's very difficult in 2019 to find R2R working links.
    First question:

    Do you need to download a crack made by R2R or can you download a cracked Kontakt by any other team?

    Second question:

    You are referring to the com.native-instruments.Kontakt 5.plist inside the archive of the cracked Kontakt, not the one already present in Library>Preferences belonging to the legit Kontakt, right?



    Third question:

    OK, I'm quite geeky but I don't know what rules to assign in batChmod. I tried and failed to find sort of a tutorial in this forum. What do I have to do with batChmod?

    Fourth question:

    What do you mean with "backup the installer rar"?
    At last but not at least, I noticed that you didn't mention to install the k'd Kontakt through the .pkg Installer. Is there something related you have to do in order to perform the whole process correctly?
    Thank you so much in advance

    Is this true? Because loads of people talk about cracked libraries, even in this thread, for example:

    Also there are places where people release and share versions of libraries they say are cracked, and people even talk about one group's crack release being unstable, another one being better etc. If there's no such thing as a cracked library, how does any of that make sense? If there are no cracked libraries, would not people be sharing the regular files like are for sale? Then just adding nicnt files? And does that work?

    Posted this in another spot but figured it might be better suited here;

    sorry for coming in here casual, but I've been reading as much as I can about this and I would just like to verify a few things;

    A) Are you guys saying that, on windows 10, cracked Kontakt 6 will not work with Legit Kontakt 6 and instead if I wish to run both versions together I need to run cracked Kontakt 5.6.8? with legit kontakt 6??

    B) If this is the case what is the process now? I read the original forum about how to run both together from a few years back but I have to imagine the process has changed a bit now.

    Thanks again for everything you guys do!

    So I can run my legit kontakt 6 with a cracked version on windows 10? Which version should I get and is there a process, someone in the other thread is claiming its impossible and I have to go with one or the other to keep it simple.

    to those that use komplete kontrol mk2 keyboard and nks patches -this is my question:

    will i need a cracked version of komplete kontrol in order for my cracked libraries to work in there (for the sake of using nks patche sand browsing)?

    -will i need a cracked version of maschine in order to use the maschine drum kits as well?

    my set up is ableton,maschine 2, komplete kontrol mk2 midi controller on win 10 ....i just went thru hell removing everything and i understand a cracked kontakt needs to be patched in order to get unlicensed libraries working, my main concern is getting them to work in komplete kontrol for the sake of being able to browse with nks updates...

    to the wise, please throw me a bone.

    I just had a look at page one, and you haven't mentioned what to do when the lib doesn't show up, due to the .xml being created by service centre as having an SNPID # of <000>, instead of what is in the .nicnt.
    Obviously it's a simple text edit chore, but I think it should be included in the tips.

    Well no. A cracked bit of software and a patched bit of software are two different things.
    A crack usually just involves installing and authorising the original software and then replacing it with the cracked version.
    And a patched version involves applying the patch to the software.
    If you have a cracked Kontakt, (or a patched one, for that matter!) all shared libs should just work.

    edit: Also, I've just thought that some software comes cracked and pre-patched. I think! Therefore not needing to apply the patch.

    This is a very simple thing that a lot of people have complicated for not having any idea of what they are saying. Legit Kontakt and legit Maschine need LEGIT libraries. In other words, you need to purchase them. If you dont have the $$ or want to try before you buy, then you must avail yourself of the latest non legit Kontakt, Komplete Kontrol, Maschine. Then you can use all the available libraries, expansions, and previews that you wish without worrying about cracking, patching.

    Hello everybody, I just finished installing komplete ultimate 12 and I've to say I'm pretty new to this stuff. I still want to use Spitfire and other dowloaded Kontakt plugins with my S88 and Maschine. The thing is I'm pretty paranoid about getting banned from Native Access if I do something wrong. I've read all 11 pages in this thread but still scared af to lose my legit products as I'm new to OS X cracking stuff. Is this ever happened or possible?

    Short: no, you will not get "banned". NI and Spitfire are different companies and the only thing that connects them is that SF is pissed because they have to pay big money to NI, so their libraries are compatible with Free Kontakt Player.

    I have both NI and SF legit. Spitfire library is (from NI perspective) a so called "third party library". SF also has it's own version of software similar to NI's Access. Their libraries don't get registered automatically in Native Access - they are in demo mode until you manually register them (enter the serial No.). So, if I open my Native Access now, I can see quite a few things in "demo" mode, because I was to lazy to +Add a serial (upper left). It would show the same, if those libs were non-legit.

    The only thing to keep in mind is that you can not use a non legit library with your legit Kontakt (read what The Pirate wrote in the post above). You can disable "data tracking" in Native Access (User->Preferences ->Settings), but I don't think it matters..
